Testimonials

★★★★★

I'm super excited about my new office gallery wall and especially my beautiful prints from Art Direct! (The four large 16x20s and the floral 8x10 at the top were all printed by Art Direct.)

I highly recommend these guys and had to come give them a shout out!

I worked with Brent and had an amazing customer experience. He was super responsive and everything happened just as promised/expected.I was able to pick up the prints in Cedar Park within a few days (they also have a location on Anderson Lane).

I highly recommend!

Fantastic work!

We acquired an oil painting on canvas in Europe, rolled it and brought it home to Austin.

We also had a few lithographs. We took them to Art Direct to stretch the canvas and add a nice frame, and mount the lithographs with glass and matte.

The Art Direct location had a lot of different frames to choose from and the staff was very helpful.

This was an expect craftsmanship, I can highly recommend them.

I cannot say enough positive things about Art Direct and the experience I had there!

My friend had designed a custom piece of artwork that she told me to have printed on metal using dye sublimation.

After calling almost 10 other places and being told "it wasn't possible" and "I'd never find anyone in Austin to do it" my 11th call was fortunately to Brent at Art Direct who told me immediately that not only could they do it but that they were excited to create this piece for me!!

Brent, Demi and all the other staff were so friendly, helpful and knowledgeable.

I felt like they cared about the piece as much as I did.

The piece was completed quickly and they even delivered it to my house! I would ABSOLUTELY use them again and you should too!

Fantastic!

Had a 40x80 canvas stretched.

Solid frame and price was fair and lower than anyone else I spoke with.

They are quick to respond to emails and everyone I spoke to was a delight!

They don't upsell you, they listen to what you want and walk you through the process.

Will ALWAYS use them for all framing needs I have!

Fantastic group of people!

We had a painting needing to be hung correctly.

They took the time to take care of my aging painting, flattened it, then mounted it.

The painting was a challenge- but hanging it on my wall was a greater challenge.

They came back with a taller ladder, worked together, and hung my painting perfectly.

Art Direct is an awesome business.

I went to their new showroom/framing shop with a previously framed art piece.

The art had been framed by an online framer that promised hinge mount tape, which is an archival mounting process that allows valuable limited edition art to be more easily unframed.

Unfortunately, when I opened the frame I found that the art was taped down with double-sided tape to the foamboard and couldn't be removed.

The guys at Art Direct took a look, and offered to help with removing the art piece from the foamboard.

They called the next day and let me know they were able to get it removed.

It had taken 3 1/2 HOURS to remove, but it was done with absolute care and for an amazing price.

They went above and beyond for me.

My wife came to the second visit when I picked up the unframed art piece and loved the collection of frames that they have on display, and they have HUNDREDS of more framing options beyond the ones displayed.

They also print gorgeous art on metal and have a CNC machine for all kinds of custom work.

The framer that helped with my project has more than 20 years experience and really loves all the art he gets to work with.

I'll definitely be back to support this business as I frame future pieces.

Keep an eye on them, they're just getting started with local framing and will be - already are to me - the best place in town to visit for framing.

I went to Art Direct to stretch a very large canvas (about 8ft tall) which there aren't that many places in Austin that do that.

The piece came flawless and the they did a very good job.

But what makes me to go back there in future is their customer service.

Brent was extremely friendly and helpful making the experience much better!

We were gifted a beautiful painting and needed to get a frame to go with it, my fiancé found out about Art Direct through an online search and we decided to give it a try.

Unfortunately, I cannot remember the name of the girl who helped us (I want to say her name started with a D...), but she was absolutely amazing!

She was very knowledgeable about all of the different frames and helped suggest different options for our painting.

She was very patient with us switching between different options and helping select a frame that fit what we were looking for!

When we went to pick up our frame the staff was very friendly as well!

They did an amazing job with stretching the canvas and putting the frame with it!

We will definitely be coming back for our next framing job.

They also do prints, which we were excited to learn about as well!

After trying to get two paintings framed at Hobby Lobby, and being told it would be at least a few weeks, we found Art Direct with a Google search.

So glad we did.

Brent and Nate gave us exactly the frame and mat we wanted, at a really good price -- and had it done in two days!

Now our kitchen reno is complete. We'll be giving Art Direct more of our business!
